This Thanksgiving, we were all grateful that Mother Nature delivered a few nice storms, allowing Park City Mountain Resort to open both sides of the mountain. Lots of recent snow and the resorts’ hearty snowmaking efforts mean our mountains are enjoying good coverage in the early season. Deer Valley® Resort will open December 8th to excellent conditions.
Both of our resorts invested significantly in snowmaking system expansions and Vail Resorts added another 250 seats to the popular Cloud Dine mid-mountain restaurant and did extensive renovations to the historic Mid-Mountain Lodge as well. This will also be the first year Deer Valley® Resort will be included in the Ikon Pass family of resorts; we look forward to meeting new Park City skiers from companion resorts around the world.
Happy Holidays… see you on the slopes!
